What do I think? I think people should care what others think about them! Just another immoral deed from our government, like God in government, school, and soon to be removed from money, then church! What are you learning? Q: Does it matter what others think of us?
[The key is] realizing that our aim in life is for "Christ to be magnified in our bodies whether by life or by death" (Philippians 1:19-20). In other words, with Paul, we do care - really care - about what others think of Christ. Their salvation hangs on what they think of Christ. And our lives are to display his truth and beauty. So we must care what others think of us as representative of Christ. Love demands it.
